Funny Clean Jokes – Drop Dead

Six retired Irishmen were playing poker in Monaghan’s flat in Dungarvan when Sean O’Toole loses €700 on a single hand, clutches his chest, and drops dead at the table.

Showing respect for their fallen brother, the other five continue playing standing up. Michael Lennon looks around and asks, ‘Oh, me boys, someone’s got to tell Sean’s wife. Who will it be?’

They draw straws.  Cavan Colquhoun picks the short one.  They tell him to be discreet and gentle and not to make a bad situation any worse. ‘Discreet? I’m the most discreet Irishman you’ll ever meet. Discretion is my middle name. Leave it to me, announces Cavan.

He goes over to O’Toole’s house and knocks on the door. Brenda O’Toole answers and asks what he wants. Cavan declares: ‘Your husband just lost €700 and is afraid to come home.’

‘Tell him to drop dead!’ snarls Brenda. ‘I’ll go tell him.’ says Cavan.

Funny Frog Joke

I went fishing this morning but after a short time, I ran out of worms. Then I saw a cottonmouth with a frog in his mouth. Frogs are good bass bait.

Knowing the snake couldn’t bite me with the frog in his mouth I grabbed him right behind the head, took the frog, and put it in my bait bucket.

Now the dilemma was how to release the snake without getting bit.  So, I grabbed my bottle of Jack Daniels and poured a little whiskey into its mouth. His eyes rolled back, he went limp.  I released him into the lake without incident and carried on fishing using the frog.

A little later, I felt a nudge on my foot. There was that same snake with two frogs in his mouth.

Characteristics of Happiness


People who are optimistic, by definition feel happier about the future as they assume things will be better than they likely will be, even in the face of a negative past.


People who are not bothered by the past or future can also just be happy in the present moment. Worry about the future
is a common creator of unhappiness, and stopping worrying can give you a huge boost.


Those with a sense of fun and who can laugh, especially at themselves, are generally happier.

Laughing at yourself implies a sound sense of security with a reduced tendency to worry, which in turn contributes to happiness.


People who challenge themselves, seeking to learn and achieve find pleasure not only in reaching their goals but also
in the struggle and focus to get there.

They often set both smaller and larger goals, enabling them to get a sense of achievement in each of the little steps along the way to the greater joy of achieving something significant.


People who are altruistic, caring for others, and spending time helping them often find great happiness in this.
Caring for others gets you out of yourself and stops you from worrying. Seeing others who are less fortunate than you can also provide motivation.


Being true to yourself creates internal alignment and reduces inner conflict that prevents you from being truly happy. This helps to explain how caring works — if you have internal Values that say ‘caring is right’, then by caring for others you increase internal alignment.


People who are grateful for their lot in life and who show gratitude towards others for the things they receive have been found to be happier. Notably, thanks can be found in many religious prayers.


When people keep busy they are often happier than those who slow down, watch TV, surf the net, and other less active

Activity reduces the time for moping, adds interest, and increases the chance of meeting others and finding happiness in new areas.

Clean Circus Jokes

Two cannibals are eating a clown. One says to the other: ‘Does this taste funny to you?’

Circus Supremo: P.T. Barnum

Circus Poster

P.T. Barnum, the owner of the Barnum & Bailey Circus was the originator of the phrase “There’s a sucker born every minute”.  Sometime in the early 1900’s he offered $10,000 in cash to any person who could thoroughly dupe, or sucker him.

Barnum was always looking for interesting new acts or novel creatures to exhibit, and one day he received a letter from a fellow in Maine who claimed to possess a cherry-coloured cat.  He asked Barnum if he was interested in such a thing for his circus.

Barnum contacted the man and said yes, if the cat were truly cherry-colored, he’d gladly put it on display.

Well, a few days later a crate marked “live animal” was delivered to him.  When Barnum opened it, he found a somewhat frightened but otherwise perfectly ordinary-looking black housecat inside, along with a note that read:

“Maine cherries are black. There’s a sucker born every minute…”

Thoroughly tickled, Barnum sent the man a cheque for $10,000.

(It’s not known what happened to the cat, but maybe Barnum kept it as a reminder of the day he got suckered.)

Letter of the Month – Dear Abby

Dear Abby,

I have never written to you before, but I really need your advice.  I have suspected for some time now that my wife has been cheating on me. The usual signs. phone rings but if I answer, the caller hangs up.

My wife has been going out with ‘the girls’ a lot recently although when I ask their names she always says, ‘Just some friends from work, you donít know them.’ I always try to stay awake to look out for her coming home, but I usually fall asleep. Anyway, I have never approached the subject with my wife. I think deep down I just didnít want to know the truth, but last night she went out again and I decided to really check on her.

Around midnight, I decided to hide in the garage behind my golf clubs so I could get a good view of the whole street when she arrived home from a night out with ‘the girls’. It was at that moment, crouching behind my clubs, that I noticed that the graphite shaft on my driver appeared to have a hairline crack right by the club head.

Is this something I can fix myself or should I take it back to the golf shop where I bought it?

Two Priests Decided to Go to Hawaii on Vacation

Two priests were determined to make this a real vacation by not wearing anything that would identify them as clergy. As soon as the plane landed they headed for a store and bought some really outrageous shorts, shirts, sandals, sunglasses, etc.

The next morning they went to the beach dressed in their ‘tourist’ garb. They were sitting on beach chairs, enjoying a drink, the sunshine, and the scenery when a ‘drop dead gorgeous’ topless blonde came walking straight towards them …… They couldn’t help but stare.

As the blonde passed them she smiled and said ‘Good Morning, Father ~ Good Morning, Father,’ nodding and addressing each of them individually, then she passed on by. They were both stunned. How in the world did she know they were priests?  So the next day, they went back to the store and bought even more outrageous outfits.

Once again, in their new attire, they settled down in their chairs to enjoy the sunshine. After a little while, the same gorgeous topless blonde came walking toward them.

Again she nodded at each of them and said ‘Good morning, Father ~ Good morning, Father,’ and started to walk away.

One of the priests couldn’t stand it any longer and said, ‘Just a minute, young lady.’ ‘Yes, Father?’

‘We are priests and proud of it, but I have to know, how in the world did you know we are priests, dressed as we are?’

She replied, ‘Father, it’s me, Sister Kathleen’ …

New Bar Stools – For Smartly Dressed Women **

Nuns on bar stools

Sisters Mary Catherine, Maria Theresa, Katherine Marie, Rose Frances, & Mary Kathleen left the Convent on a trip to St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City and were sight-seeing on a Tuesday in July. It was hot and humid in town and their traditional garb was making them so uncomfortable, they decided to stop in at Patty McGuire’s Pub for a cold soft drink.

Patty had recently added special legs to his barstools, which were the talk of the fashionable Eastside neighborhood. All 5 Nuns sat up at the bar and were enjoying their Cokes when Monsignor Riley and Father McGinty entered the bar through the front door.

They, too, came for a cold drink when they were shocked and almost fainted at what they saw:-

** At first Guy was a bit slow on the uptake.  To tell the truth, I was in danger of dismissing the story as poor until I looked at the source – Hannah Baker.  Then I thought, hmm… if Hannah sent it, this must be good, so I re-read the story, studied the picture, especially the nun’s habits, and I smiled.

A priest and a taxi driver both died and went to heaven. St Christopher was at the Pearly gates waiting for them.

St Christopher and the Taxi Driver

The taxi driver did as he was told and followed St Christopher to a mansion. It had everything you could imagine from a bowling alley to an Olympic-sized pool.

‘Oh my word, thank you,’ said the taxi driver.

Next, St Christopher led the priest to a rough old shack with a bunk bed and a little old television set.

‘Wait, I think you are a little mixed up,’ said the priest. ‘Shouldn’t I be the one who gets the mansion? After all, I was a priest, went to church every day, and preached God’s word.’

‘Yes, that’s true.’ St Christopher rejoined, ‘But during your sermons, people slept. When the taxi driver drove, everyone prayed.’

Nasty Case of Arthritis

A man flops down on a subway seat next to a priest. The man’s tie is stained, his face is smeared with red lipstick, and a half-empty bottle of gin is sticking out of his torn coat pocket. He opens a newspaper and begins reading.

After a few minutes, the guy turns to the priest and asks, ‘Say, Father, what causes arthritis?’ Loose living; cheap, wicked woman; too much alcohol; and contempt for your fellow man, ‘answers the priest.’ I’ll be damned, ‘the drunk mutters, returning to his paper.

The priest, thinking about what he said, nudges the man and apologizes.’ I’m very sorry. I didn’t mean to be so harsh. How long have you had arthritis?’

‘Oh, I don’t have it, Father. But it says here that the Pope does.’

Holy Smoke

Acting on a tip-off, Greek police officers raided a nunnery in the village of Filiro, near Thessaloniki in Greece. It amazed them to find 35
healthy cannabis plants growing in the walled garden.

What the nuns told the police was, that two gentlemen offered to help them tidy the garden in the Greek Orthodox nunnery. Summing up the circumstances, the officers believed the nuns when they said they had no idea that ‘decorative plants’ were really pot or k├ínnabis in Greek. Police are still trying to trace the two gardeners.

Driving Jokes

Department for Transport Initiative

Because of the poor quality of driving in England, the Department for Transport has now devised a new scheme to identify poor drivers and give good drivers the opportunity to recognize them whilst driving.

There was a huge plague of such drivers on 2nd June 2006 (World Cup Football).  Those drivers who were found to be driving badly included:

  • Overtaking in dangerous places
  • Hovering within one inch of the car in front
  • Stopping sharply
  • Speeding in residential areas
  • Pulling out without indication
  • Performing U-turns inappropriately in busy streets;
  • undertaking on motorways taking up more than one lane in multi-lane roads

These drivers will be issued with flags, white with a red cross, signifying their inability to drive properly. These flags must be clipped to the door of the car and be visible to all other drivers and pedestrians.

Those drivers who have shown particularly poor driving skills will have to display a flag on each side of the car to indicate their greater lack of skill and general lower intelligence mindset to the general public.

Please circulate this to as many other motorists as you can so that drivers and pedestrians will be aware of the meaning of these flags.

Peep your horn and get a ticket

A man who beeped his horn at seven police manning a speed check was given a £30 fine.

Highway worker Nick Lenthall beeped his horn and raised his thumb at the officers as he drove past in his council
lorry in Bournemouth.

He was shocked when the entire unit climbed into their van and pulled him over a few minutes later.

Sergeant Richard Newton then handed Nick a ticket for ‘ unnecessary use of audible warning equipment’.

Nick, 47, said: ‘It was a very light-hearted thing, I was just having a laugh. And I wasn’t speeding. But I was stunned when they pulled me over and started telling me off. It’s a waste of resources.’

A police spokesman confirmed that a sergeant, two PCs, and four trainee officers were at the speed check.

According to The Sun, he said: ‘A fixed penalty notice was issued for a minor traffic offense.’

Best of the Best Heroic Failures

A book entitled ‘Heroic Failures’ was written by Stephen Pile. Pub. 1979. contains the best examples of the genre. Will has laughed regularly at the antics described in the book.   It is a book worth dipping into.

a) The worst homing pigeon: This historic bird was released in Pembrokeshire in June 1953 and was expected to reach its base that evening. It was returned by post, dead, in a cardboard box eleven years later from Brazil.

b) The least successful exhibition: The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents held an exhibition at Harrogate, Yorkshire in 1968. The entire display fell down.

c) The least successful distribution of anti-virus software: A distinguished software development group of a Computer Studies Department of an Austrian University, known and recognized for its contributions to anti-virus software, proudly announced its most recent product and distributed it to selected testers. Unfortunately, the distribution disk was infected by a new type of virus which could not be detected nor could it be removed by the previous release of that anti-virus software. An awkward callback action was necessary.

d) Worst rugby match: In 1966 a rugby match between a team from Colwyn Bay, Wales, and Portmadoc rugby
club was unexpectedly abandoned when at the kick-off it was discovered that neither team owned a ball.

Footnote: Guy knows this area of Wales well, the people are notorious for their tight-fisted ness.  For example, ‘Tal’ Evans from Llandudno (nearish to Colwyn Bay), won the world’s ‘Tight Wad’ championships 3 years running.

The surgeon paused, smiled leaned over, and whispered in Allan’s ear, ‘Try doing it with the engine

‘Sounds good to me,’ said the first lady. But the other woman said, ‘Oh Sire, do not spill innocent blood. Let the
other woman’s daughter marry him.’

A Witty, Wry, Stereotypical View of World Reaction to Terror Alerts

(Something to offend everyone! No nationality spared.)

The British are feeling the pinch in relation to recent terrorist threats and have raised their security level from “Miffed” to “Peeved.”

Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to “Irritated” or even “A Bit Cross.” Brits have not been “A Bit Cross” since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies all but ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from “Tiresome” to “Bloody Nuisance.” The last time the British issued a “Bloody Nuisance” warning level was during the great plague of 1666.

The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from “Run” to “Hide.” The only two higher levels in France are “Collaborate” and “Surrender.” The rise was precipitated by a recent re that destroyed France’s white flag factory, effectively paralyzing the country’s military capability.

It’s not only the French who are on a heightened level of alert.

has increased the alert level from “Shout loudly and excitedly” to “Elaborate Military Posturing”. Two more levels remain: “Ineffective Combat Operations” and “Change Sides.”

The Germans also increased their alert state from “Disdainful Arrogance” to “Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs”. They also have two higher levels: “Invade a Neighbour” and “Lose.”

Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual, and the only threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels.

The Spanish are all excited to see their new submarines ready to deploy. These beautifully designed subs have glass bottoms so the new Spanish navy can get a really good look at the old Spanish navy.

Americans meanwhile are carrying out pre-emptive strikes, on all of their allies, just in case.

New Zealand has also raised its security levels from “baaa” to “BAAAA!”. Due to continuing defense cutbacks [the air force being a squadron of spotty teenagers flying paper airplanes and the navy some toy boats in the Prime Minister’s bath], New Zealand only has one more level of escalation, which is ‘Croikey, I hope Australia will come to end riscue us.’ In the event of invasion, New Zealanders will be asked to gather together in a strategic defensive position called “Bondi”.

Australia, meanwhile, has raised its security level from “No worries” to “She’ll be right, mate.” Three more escalation levels remain, “Crikey!”; “I think we’ll need to cancel the Barbie this weekend” and “The Barbie is canceled.” There has never been a situation that has warranted the use of the final escalation level.

One story heard by Will and Guy is that of “Jack the Treacle Eater”.  The legend tells us that Jack was a local runner whose role was to carry messages for the Messiter family of Barwick Park, to London and back; we were told that he trained on treacle, to keep him going and hence his name.

Now, his commemorative tower can be found in Barwick Park, Somerset, England.  Does the picture to the right remind you of a man with huge thighs?  Or can you imagine those stones in the garden folly to be the messages?

Good Best Man Wedding Speech Joke

At the last wedding I was at there was a priest and a minister present.

When they brought the drinks round for the toast, the minister said, ‘I’ll have a large whisky.’

The priest commented, ‘No alcohol for me I’d rather go with a scarlet woman.’ So the minister put his drink back and murmured, ‘Sorry I didn’t know there was a choice.’

Now as the best man, I don’t want to offend anyone so if there is a priest or a minister present I apologize, and if there is a scarlet woman here: I’ll meet you in the bar in 10 minutes!

Lightning and Trees

Smart Blonde Jokes

Smart Blonde Joke

A blonde walks into a bank in New York City and asks for the Loan officer. She says she’s going to Europe on business for two weeks and needs to borrow $5,000.

The bank officer says the bank will have to have some kind of security for the loan, so the blonde hands over the keys to a new Porsche 911 Cabriolet.

The car is parked on the street in front of the bank, she has the title and everything checks out. The bank agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan.

The bank’s president and its officers all enjoy a good laugh at the blond for using a $120,000 Porche as collateral against a $5,000 loan.

An employee of the bank then proceeds to drive the Benz into the bank’s underground garage and parks it there. Two weeks later, the blonde returns, and repays the $5,000 and the interest, which comes to $14.27.

The loan officer says, “Miss, we are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a multimillionaire.

What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow $5,000?”

The blonde replies, “Where else in New York City can I park my Car for two weeks for only $14.27 and expect it to be there when I return?”
